Ellen Pompeo Gives Wedding Details

Ellen Pompeo

Ellen Pompeo‘s upcoming wedding won’t be a lavish production – but her co-stars might need to make some travel plans if they want to attend, she says.

“There will be no ‘big’ anything,” the Grey’s Anatomy star, 37, told People magazine  Saturday at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, a benefit for the homeless in Brentwood, Calif. “It’s going to be very small.”

Beyond that, she and record producer Chris Ivery, who got engaged in November, are keeping mum on the details, but Pompeo hinted that the ceremony won’t take place in Los Angeles: “We were thinking about going away and getting married.”

The actress was reunited Saturday night with some of her co-stars for the first time since production on Grey’s wrapped several weeks ago. Also at the gala, hosted by Eric “Dr. McSteamy” Dane’s wife Rebecca Gayheart, Patrick Dempsey, Kate Walsh, T.R. Knight, Justin Chambers, Sara Ramirez and James Pickens, Jr.

Pompeo said that when Ivery proposed on her 37th birthday, she was only slightly caught off guard. “Chris and I have been together for four and a half years, so I was completely surprised, but not that surprised. We’ve been together a while.”

Ivery – like her, a Boston-area native – has changed her life because “I just have somebody to share everything with,” she said, “all of these moments. The bad ones and the good ones. We have a very strong bond, and we just understand each other. He’s just a real companion.”

She added that she knew Ivery was “the one” early on: “I guess you fall in love and you think he’s the guy right away. Right when you fall in love, you think he’s the guy. You don’t sort of fall into a relationship thinking it’s only going to be temporary.”

The couple met in a Los Angeles grocery store in 2003 and began dating about six months later after “one night she just looked different to me,” Ivery, 38, told People late last year. They quickly discovered that they had grown up about 10 miles away from each other in Massachusetts and that Ivery had met Pompeo’s father there.

“We have a lot in common,” Pompeo said Saturday. “We’re from the same hometown, almost.”

ER star Mekhi Phifer might have all the answers as Dr. Gregory Pratt on the NBC medical drama, but in real life he’s the one popping the question. OK! learned that the actor, 32, proposed to his girlfriend Oni Souratha with a brilliant, 2.65-carat diamond solitaire ring on May 9 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

“It was a total surprise for her!” Jason Arasheben, owner of Jason of Beverly Hills who designed the ring, told OK! exclusively. “He called and said ‘you need to get this done ASAP!’ We did it in 48 hours!”

The actor created the $50,000 ring, which is set with micro pave eternity setting on the band, to personally suit his fiancée, who works as an assistant to director Bille Woodruff. Jason delivered the finished piece to Mekhi on May 8, just before the actor whisked away his bride-to-be on a romantic getaway where he proposed to her the next day.

“She said it’s amazing how well he knows her,” adds Jason of Oni’s reaction to the sparkler. As for the big day, the jeweler is already working on the matching wedding band, “It’s going to be a simple, one-row band to match.”
